    Possible to save and re-upload my workspaces when doing a reinstall of NT8?

    Wondering if it's possible to save/relocate my old workspaces before uninstalling NT8 and then to upload them to a freshly installed NT8?

    Having some issues with a plugin that may require me to do a re-install and I REALLY don't want to have to recreate all my workspaces.

    Thanks!

    Hello Stupid_idiot

    Thank you for your post.

    Yes it is possible for you to back up your workspaces to a second PC.

    The following instructions will explain how to backup your NinjaTrader 8 files to a second computer.

    Please note that the following list is the items you can choose to include or exclude from your backup (Configuration files, Database, Historical Chart Data, Log and Trace files, Market Replay Data, NinjaScript Files, Templates, Workspaces). Many users exclude the historical chart data, log and trace files, and Market Replay data to reduce the file size.

    Also, the new computer will have a different Machine ID and will result in any passwords for account connections being removed along with the NinjaTrader License key being removed. For security purposes all account connections will need to have the username and password re-entered and the License key will also need to be re-entered.

    You will also need to contact any 3rd party vendors and let them know that your machine ID has changed. You can locate the new machine ID by the following:
    • Control Center > Help > About... (e.g. Machine ID: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX)

    *Follow these steps:
    • Open NinjaTrader 8 on the computer you wish to backup from and disconnect from any open connections if applicable
    • Go to Tools > Export > Backup File
    • Select which items you would like to backup and click 'Export'
    • Email or Save the file to an external storage device. The file can be found in the Documents\NinjaTrader 8 Backup folder on your PC

    Open NinjaTrader 8 on the computer you wish to restore to and disconnect from any open connections if applicable.
    • Open the email with the backup file or connect the external storage and save the backup file to a destination of your choosing (I recommend the desktop as it is easy to find)
    • Go to Tools > Import > Backup File...
    • Select the backup file you created from the location you saved it

    I have also attached the publicly available Help Guide section regarding backup and restore below:
